While most houses in Slovenia carry a household name, there are some houses which do not exist anymore and were deserted many years before anyone was aware of their existence. The household names for these houses is therefore lost as it was not documented anywhere either. The house at Podklanec 1 is one of those houses.
Much of our research has shown that the house with the first address in most villages is one of some significance. It was likely a house which the mayor or village governor may have lived in at some point or even the church in some villages such as Vinica which is where the parish sits for the surrounding area. Unfortunately, we have not yet found any information to give us a good indication of what significance Podklanec 1 held.
